So I am officially in another trio! Either no one can get along with me or President thinks I work better with 2 companions. haha only joking. But one of the Sisters in Rio Rancho went home because of medical reasons and so they had to have an emergency transfer and Sister Acton's companion Sister Hay went to be companions with the other Sister in Rio Rancho and so they combined our areas so we have 2 wards again and we are so so excited!!(: 

But this week I learned how important our covenants are and keeping our covenants. I have been reading about the Anti-Nephi Lehis and all that they went through. Their conversion story and their trials and hardships that followed their conversion. I was reading in Alma 53 and it is to the point in the story where the Anti Nephi Lehis are really struggling and they come to the point that they almost dig up their weapons and begin to fight for their liberty. In seeing this Helaman reminds them of their covenants and how it is better to perish keeping our covenants than to win the battle breaking them. (Alma 53:14-15) 

Something that I loved in reading this was the faith of the Anti Nephi Lehis. They knew that in keeping their covenant that they had made with the Lord that He would help them. He would be there and he would guide them. They talk about wading through their afflictions holding on to their covenants and relying on the hand of the Lord to help them with the rest. And what truly is amazing is that it happened. The Lord blessed the people with a way out of their trails. He helped them to remember that their children could fight, and not only that they could but that He would protect them in the process. 

These men and women really were men and women of such great faith and testimonies. They knew and were reminded of the strength that comes from keeping their covenants. I know that that is so true today as well. Whether it be a baptismal covenant (on a side note keeping the commandments is part of that covenant and Missionary work is a commandment so if you need to repent, repent and share the gospel) or temple covenants when we keep those covenants the Lord keeps his part and we will find greater joy and happiness in life. He will bless us and He will prepare a way for us to keep those covenants. Hold true and see the beauty of the Lord unfold to you. 

Love you all lots and hope you have the best day ever!!

1.Everyone keeps calling me a "Seasoned Missionary" like I'm going home tomorrow. Guys, I've still got a long time. I'm practically a greenie
2. The new ward I am in has a Deaf family and it makes me so happy. I may or may not have watched the interpreter the entire sacrament meeting. 
3. Apparently in Polish the word "Fart" means good luck
And Sister Morris came to visit
 a couple of weeks ago and surprised
us by knocking on our door
